Jill Zarin was unceremoniously axed from The Real Housewives of New York last summer, and now, Radar Online is reporting that staff from the show have actually asked the opinionated redhead to return!

So, will Jill come back to Bravo, or is she so over the Real Housewives?

Jill claims she considered quiting the show last year, and tells Radar, “I had such anxiety and pressure to act a certain way and I was paranoid for a reason, because people were planning and plotting against me.”

She insists that despite being asked back, she’s done with all of the drama and hopes to move on to bigger and better things. “I’m too old and have grown up too much to do Real Housewives anymore, I want to set an example to my kids and my grandkids.”

The new, mature Jill Zarin will be appearing this season on Iron Chef America's Top 5 Moments in Kitchen Stadium History, which premiered on January 31 at 10:30 p.m. on The Cooking Chanel.
